Family is Forever Stamp of the Month Blog Hop




Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If  you arrived here from Vicki's blog your on the right path.
If  you've just found our hop be assured that you will see all the artwork, since the hop is actually one big circle, but if you'd like to start at the beginning, want a list of all the blogs, or get lost visit Melinda's blog.   

This month our featured stamp set is:
Family is Forever
 

To be honest I had a hard time working with this set.  I'm still not sure how well it turned out, yet my Mother loves the layout, and that is always good. 


  
I apologize for my picture it's not very good.  I'm having an issue which I hope to get corrected within the hour. 

Thank you for taking the time to view our blog hop.  There are over 70 consultants participating this month.  Now it's time for you to hop over to Nancy's blog.

P.S.  On Sept. 6th we will be having our National Stamping month blog hop featuring an adorable stamp set with 30 images.  Make sure you pop in to see whats shaking!

Close to My Heart New Product Blog Hop



Welcome
 To the Close to My Heart New Product Blog Hop!

This blog hop is celebrating the Arrival of all the new FABULOUS products in 
Close to My Hearts Annual Inspirations.  If you arrived here from Lori's blog your on the right path.  If you've just found our hop be assured that you will see all the artwork, since the hop is actually one big circle, but if you'd like to start at the beginning, want a list of all the blogs, or get lost visit Melinda's blog for a list of all the consultants participating.


I'm focusing on two My Reflections paper packs the first is Snowhaven.  I adore Snowhaven and all the wonderful stamp sets that work with this versatile paper pack.  Snowhaven lets you celebrate Christmas or all the fun things you can do in Winter including just hanging out in front of the fire place. 



Featured stamp set is Best Christmas D1613
Showing the dimension of the box achieved by using foam tape.

I do not feel this box is as successful as the one I did with the Brushed paper.  It's very hard to see the pattern on the black B&T paper.  The pattern is of subtle snowflakes in very lovely gray.  I should of picked another B&T, but sometimes we all make things that are not quite right.  My Inspiration for the boxes come from the new Annual Inspirations on pgs. 78 & 98.  

 Products Used

Brushed is the second paper pack I'm focusing on.  I made the same boxes from our Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  Brushed is all the promise of Spring & Summer, and perfect for Bridal Showers.  My favorite new colors are Pixie & Thistle.  Brushed features Pixie.  Pixie is a gorgeous pink, and while I love Pixie it is hard to say goodbye to an old favorite Blush.  I know very sad.

 Featured stamp sets on this favor box are D1602 A Budding Friendship, B1454 Thanksgiving Wreath, & D1623 Brushed WOTG
 Using a bit of foam tape gives the box a bit more dimension.
